Can you give our readers some tips on how to always look and feel good?

If you don’t have time for a full-blown workout, you can aim to incorporate it into your daily activities, such as doing push-ups while watching TV or taking the stairs whenever possible.

Food-wise, I eat a third less of carbs than usual and replace it with fruits and vegetables, and instead of having bread every morning you can substitute them with fruits and eggs… Make small incremental changes to avoid that caged-up and restrictive feeling!

What’s your favourite childhood memory?

When I was younger my dad would take the whole family to West Coast Park to fly kites and have a picnic there. It has changed so much since then but there are still loads of people flying kites there and it certainly brings back wonderful memories.

Any celebrity crushes at the moment?

I wouldn’t call it a crush, but I admire Tom Hardy simply because he’s cute!

If you could meet anyone in the world and chat with them, who would it be?

It’ll definitely be Priscilla Chan, wife of Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. I’d like to ask her how exactly it feels like being married to a guy like Mark, as well as how she copes with the power and responsibility that comes with being so incredibly wealthy.

Where can fans look out for you in the near future?

I’m currently filming an upcoming drama series for Channel 5 that revolves around three women who go through breast cancer together. It’s an issue close to many Singaporeans’ hearts as well as mine.
